The goal of osteopathic treatment in early pregnancy is to identify and correct any dysfunction that may be contributing to the development of pregnancy-related problems.
Common problems that may be treated with osteopathy include back pain, pelvic pain, and headaches. Osteopathic treatment is safe for both mother and child and can often provide relief when other methods have failed. In addition, Osteopathy for pregnant women can often prevent the need for more invasive interventions.
Osteopathy is a safe and effective treatment for many common pregnancy-related problems. Osteopathic treatment is gentle and does not involve the use of drugs or surgery.
There are no known risks of osteopathy during early pregnancy. Osteopathic treatment is gentle and safe for both mother and child.
Pelvic Floor Strain and Pressure During Pregnancy
During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes many changes to help the growth of the baby. One of the most common issues stem from the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue that forms a supportive bowl at the base of the pelvis. These muscles and tissues span from the pubic bone to the tailbone and support the pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum.
As the baby grows, the pelvic floor muscles and tissues are subject to increased pressure and strain. This can lead to pelvic floor dysfunction, which can cause a variety of symptoms, including urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction.
Osteopathic treatment of the pelvic floor during pregnancy can help to relieve these symptoms by restoring normal function to the muscles and tissues of the pelvic floor. Osteopathic treatment is safe for both mother and baby and can be used throughout pregnancy and after delivery.
Backaches and Headaches During Pregnancy
Common pregnancy problems can also include backaches and headaches. Osteopathic treatments aim to correct any dysfunction that may be causing or contributing to these issues.
Osteopathy for backaches and headaches during pregnancy typically involves a combination of manipulative techniques and stretching exercises. Manipulative techniques are used to release restrictions in the muscles and tissues of the back and neck. Stretching exercises help to improve mobility and relieve tension.
Joint and Muscle Pains During Pregnancy
Osteopathy can also help to relieve pain in the joints and muscles. Joint and muscle pain is common during pregnancy as the body undergoes changes to accommodate the growing baby. Osteopathic treatment can help to improve joint mobility and relieve muscle tension. This is also usually through a combination of manipulative techniques and stretching exercises catered to each pregnant woman’s mobility, pain, and energy levels.
Lifestyle and self-help recommendations by our osteopaths could include stretching exercises, which are also helpful in relieving pain and tension. These exercises help to improve flexibility and strength, which serves as a preventive and restorative measure.
